Cracka Review

This maturing Hunter Semillon is a ripper! Aromas of lemons, limes and honeysuckle climb out of the glass, along with an appealing whiff of subtle honey and toast. The palate is light-bodied and full of citrusy flavours, with poised, softening acidity and a long, lingering finish. This would be awesome with pork dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Vineyard: The Stevens Semillon was harvested from the Glenoak Vineyard owned by Neil Stevens.

Vintage Conditions: Good winter rains with a near perfect spring set the vintage up well, then a cool summer with some rain at the beginning of harvest slowed the ripening slightly. Sugar levels were slightly lower than 2007 with higher natural acid.

Winemaker's Notes: After a relatively cool fermentation, the wine spent a minimal time on yeast lees before being bottled early to maintain its freshness. No oak fermentation or maturation.

Tasting Notes: Pale in colour with the fresh citrus and floral characters associated with this vineyard, the palate is dominated by these citrus characters with a great length in fruit and crisp, clean acid finish.

Alc/vol: 11.3%

Wine Companion (2012 Vintage) says
Heady with white blossom and all manner of citrus notes especially lime zest and juice flavoured with lemon barley water. So lively and not even hinting at a journey towards aged complexity - it's taking its time.

Gary Walsh (2012 Vintage) says
Lime, light spice, subtle lettuce notes in the background, but love the crisp and fluid feel this wine has. Nice lines. Zesty finish and clarity of fruit. Needs a fair amount of cellar time of course. There’s subdued power and understatement here. It’s a good release.
